Because children spend such a large portion of their time in school, it is important that schools are healthy settings. Many organizations have designed programs to help schools increase physical activity, improve nutrition, and reduce substance use. The following is a list of some of these programs, including a brief description of what the program does, how to contact their organization, and where to learn more. Many of these programs are specific to North Carolina, whereas others are national programs which also serve North Carolina's schools. This list is not comprehensive, but exemplifies the types of resources available. Information presented here comes from each program's website.
